your using a PhenomIIx6, your temps are going to be lower, OP's intel will run hotter than your chip..
To the OP, if your using an aftermarket cooler and getting to 200 on the F scale with an aftermarket cooler somthing is wrong. I would Reseat the cooler using less TIM maby?
I do support getting the D-14/Silver Arrow though, they are the best in air cooling ATM, well worth the money I think. I perfer the Silver Arrow, but the diff is around 1-2c as another poster pointed out, so I would get witch ever is cheaper
Silver Arrow is the one I would peg for the pain in the arse factor, the fans are 160mmx140mmx25mm, its an odd size, where as the D-14 has standerd size 120x120x25mm fans.Hope this helps
